The ABCA provides industry-wide business continuity planning for  entertainment content localisation

A new industry association, operating as a non-profit corporation led by a Board of Directors comprised of both localisation service providers and content owners, the ABCA is managed through MESA.

The ABCA seeks to collaboratively develop our industry’s readiness during the pandemic and through the recovery. We would like to see recording studios return to full operation safely and quickly. We’ve seen remote recording operating well where required and our continued focus will be on supporting a healthy ecosystem of content, talent and technology, all working remotely, in anticipation of a second wave or lockdown.
